Long-running Broadway favorite Jersey Boys is finally making it to the silver screen in a new film helmed by multi-Academy Award winner Clint Eastwood, according to Variety. The movie will be released June 20.

Jersey Boys is based on the true-life story of The Four Seasons, which comprised Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito, and Nick Massi. The musical chronicles the lives of this group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks who became one of the biggest American pop-music sensations of all time. Their beloved songs include "Sherry," "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Rag Doll," and more.

The film is set to star Christopher Walken as Mobster Gyp DeCarlo as well as John Lloyd Young, Erich Bergen, Michael Lomenda, and Vincent Piazza.
